Dummy Book in the in reworks, fix-ups, and redo's process!
(see first original Dummy Book here)
After much thought and great feedback from all of you, I'm redoing a ton of it! Here's what I have redrawn/replanned/redesigned so far:
I added hippo to the flamingo spot illustration, so we can see them interact as Flamingo tells him how to walk.
Here we see Hippo actually present and watching Bird tell him to peck peck peck his beak.
We see Hippo's eyes curiously looking at Bug as she spins and spins and spins!
I like this pose better I think...
I changed monkey to a choir of monkeys sitting on a palm tree, and Hippo in the corner.
This is the detail sketch of the above drawing.
Trying to make it better. First attempt.
2nd attempt. This one I like!
Now we see Croc excitedly placing new hat on Hippo. And Hippo's non-excitment.
Now we see a little memory bubble of Hippo and Mother giving him his hat in his youth, while Hippo sits on his Hippo-Rump and sorrowfully looks at his old hat in the trash.
I liked the last one, the close up of the giraffe. But Hippo needs to show up too. I love Hippo's pose here. ("You don't like my spot?")
Once I finish the rest of the sketches, I'll reinsert text for an updated dummy book!
